Yosemite Falls, Summer
Original 24 x 18 inch oil painting
Yosemite is one of my favorite painting destinations. After painting numerous versions of the falls in a horizontal format (seeing the scope of the valley and meadow in the foreground,) I decided it was time to do a vertical painting featuring the upper falls.
Yosemite Creek feeds the falls from the top, and after a fall of almost 2500 feet, the flow joins the Merced River.
Not this year, but perhaps next year, I hope to visit Yosemite in autumn to capture some of the dazzling color of the turning leaves.
This painting is available for sale now. If you are in the Southern California area, you are welcome to see it in person, please write.
